My sweet kind nephew and Godchild ,you were a very special person who I know touched many hearts with your Love and smile.Not one to say too much but when you did it was words of kindness with a smile .I remember you as a little boy growing up playing with our son (your cousin) Leo,jr.(Brother) You'll were true buddies. And who would have known when you got sick that you and Leo,Jr ( Brother) would have gotten close again to help you through your struggling illness that you looked forward to seeing Brother with prayers and bringing you his CDs from his Sunday services that brought you comfort that you looked forward to hearing.them . Bruce you were a Blessing to all of us . And I know you left behind a legacy to many because of who you were here on earth and you will truly be missed , but never forgotten.I know your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ welcomed you with a big hug and told you, " a job well done my true and faithful son". R I P my nephew ,UNTIL.

I just met you when my daughter met your grandson. It was at that moment that I realized that you are a great man. You took my daughter in like she was your own. I didn't want to let her go but I knew she was in great hands. You raised a great man that she loves and trusts. I hope you look down on these two and keep them protected. I love and appreciate everything you have done. I thank you for all that's in me.
